Is there a tutorial on the illustrator skull or same concept on how to make things like this in illustrator, to use these steps in After Effects

This is a cool tutorial. It gave me a good idea that I\'m trying right now. Rather than using a drawn illustration. In illustrator I\'ve performed a live trace on a photograph in order to get the individual paths to create the shape layers in AE.

Not really unless you want to do it manually. It probably will take forever and not yield the same results. CS6 is a solid upgrade - consider it.

Nothing has been changed in the shape engine in Ae CS6. Make sure nothing is selected [press F2], then create your shape and use the top menu bar to control its properties

Thanks for your teaching. I have a question, I'm just trying AE CS6 but can't find the "Add" menu item (nor the "Fill", "Stroke" and "px" as well). Do I need to enable something somewhere
